There was a great battle at sea. One could hear nothing but the roar of the big guns. The air was filled with black smoke. The water was strewn with broken masts and pieces of timber which the cannon balls had knocked from the ships. Many ...

The Revelation Which From Time Immemorial

The Revelation which, from time immemorial, hath been acclaimed as the
Purpose and Promise of all the Prophets of God, and the most cherished
Desire of His Messengers, hath now, by virtue of the pervasive Will of the
Almighty and at His irresistible bidding, been revealed unto men. The
advent of such a Revelation hath been heralded in all the sacred
Scriptures. Behold how, notwithstanding such an announcement, mankind hath
strayed from its path and shut out itself from its glory.

Say: O ye lovers of the One true God! Strive, that ye may truly recognize
and know Him, and observe befittingly His precepts. This is a Revelation,
under which, if a man shed for its sake one drop of blood, myriads of
oceans will be his recompense. Take heed, O friends, that ye forfeit not
so inestimable a benefit, or disregard its transcendent station. Consider
the multitude of lives that have been, and are still being, sacrificed in
a world deluded by a mere phantom which the vain imaginations of its
peoples have conceived. Render thanks unto God, inasmuch as ye have
attained unto your heart's Desire, and been united to Him Who is the
Promise of all nations. Guard ye, with the aid of the one true God--exalted
be His glory--the integrity of the station which ye have attained, and
cleave to that which shall promote His Cause. He, verily, enjoineth on you
what is right and conducive to the exaltation of man's station. Glorified
be the All-Merciful, the Revealer of this wondrous Tablet.
